Holst’s distinctive musical style begins to emerge in this luxuriant early work, with a list of influences that ranges from Wagner to Walt Whitman, and even encompasses Hindu philosophies. It ends with a serenely celestial expression of “Joy! Joy! All over joy!”, echoing Beethoven’s epic Choral Symphony, the powerful and uplifting climax of which is known the world over.
